It could be said that Center Moriches stole the Suffolk County Class B boys basketball championship.
Not that the Red Devils didn’t earn every bit of their 88-66 defeat of Mattituck Saturday, from every single one of Micah Snowden’s 34 points to every one of the 19 steals Center Moriches made to every one of the 28 turnovers it forced Mattituck into committing.
It was pilfery at its best. READ
This one hurt.
As far as aesthetics go, Thursday night’s Suffolk County League VI girls basketball game between Center Moriches and Greenport/Southold wasn’t much to look at. The play was sloppy, but what was much more important to the Porters was the final result. READ
Mattituck played a tremendous first quarter, and not a bad first half, for that matter. Overall, it wasn’t a bad showing by the Tuckers at all.
And yet, when Monday night’s Suffolk County League VI boys basketball game ended, Mattituck had a 39-point loss to show for it.

The pain of defeat was just too much for at least one inconsolable young person on the Mattituck side of the soccer field. Tuckers coach Will Hayes tried his best to comfort the distraught youngster, but the bawling continued.

An emotional Senior Day is nothing new. What was unusual about the senior ceremony before the Greenport/Southold girls volleyball team’s final home match Friday, though, was the source of much of that emotion.
Greenport coach Mike Gunther has a hard outer shell, but he unexpectedly showed his softer side. READ
Playing at soccer at Center Moriches is tough enough.
Playing the defending state champions without your top goalkeeper who has three-plus years of varsity experience is a recipe for disaster. (more…)
A little Bishop McGann-Mercy green has blended in really well with Mattituck blue.
Kelsey Bundrick’s arrival on the scene couldn’t have been better timed, at least from the Mattituck High School girls tennis team’s point of view. For the first time in five years, the Tuckers have a first singles player not named Liz Dwyer. Dwyer’s graduation this past spring left a huge opening at the top of the singles lineup.
Enter Bundrick. READ
Victory was at hand.
Or so it seemed.
Perhaps the high school football gods are toying with the Greenport/Southold/Mattituck Porters, teasing them. Because for a little over a half of Friday night’s Suffolk County Division IV game, it looked as if Greenport was on the way to its first win in two years. READ
Reese Thompson is back, wrist and all.
Some pain accompanied the Southold High School sophomore’s first competitive tennis match in a year, but the way she played and the result she attained must have helped lessen it. READ
North Fork high school soccer will have a different look and feel this fall.
Two girls programs — Southold/Greenport and Mattituck — have merged due to declining participation and population. READ
